The 1975 bringing Record Store Day to younger music fans in the UK
English indie rock band The 1975 have announced that they will be releasing a series of vinyl offerings for this year's Record Store Day, which takes place this coming Saturday on April 18.
The band have been credited with encouraging younger music fans to purchase vinyl as they confirmed details of 4 12” EPs of 'Facedown', 'IV', 'Music for Cars' and 'Sex'.
On April 13, Easy Street Records explained that The 1975's vinyl offerings will not be available in the USA for Record Store Day so the albums can now only be purchased in the UK on April 18: "The following #RSD15 titles have been canceled for @recordstoreday release: The 1975 (4 EPs) and Azealia Banks Broke w/Expensive Taste Dlux."
Other vinyl copies of albums that may appeal to a younger demographic include George Ezra’s debut album 'Wanted on Voyage', which is set to be released as a limited edition picture disc, and Calvin Harris’s debut No.1 album ‘Motion’, which will be available as a double LP for the very first time. Dave Grohl is this year's Record Store Day ambassador.
